Lau­rie Khatib, 29, mum to Finn­ley, eight, Os­car, six, Isla, five, Alice, three, and Matilda, two, says, ‘Turn it into a game, or make the ex­pe­ri­ence less scary by singing a song while you do it. I made up a lit­tle game where I pre­tend I’m wa­ter­ing my lit­tle flow­ers to make them grow.’

Andry To­farides, 36, mum to Con­stantino, two, says, ‘Even though lean­ing her back will make it eas­ier to avoid spills on the face, I’ve heard that if you get your kids to lean for­ward, they feel more com­fort­able. Be­fore you try this, get her to cover her face with a cloth, and then ask her to tip her head down, to­ward her legs.’

Elizabeth Mel­lars, 27, mum to Oliver, seven, and Rory, three, says, ‘In­stead of a cup, try us­ing squirty bath toys to wash her hair. A wa­ter­ing can is also a good idea, and work up to get­ting her to use it on her­self.’
